The market opened with a positive trend yesterday due to global sentiments but faced profit booking at high levels.
The daily chart shows a lower top and a bearish candle, indicating a chance of further correction from current levels.
Traders should keep in mind that 19800 is the major resistance area. If the index trades below 19800, the correction wave may continue, resulting in a slip towards 19600-19580.
However, if 19580 is dismissed, the Nifty may fall to 19500/19450. In the worst-case scenario, the ultimate support level is 19300.
On the other hand, if the market rallies above 19800/66700, it may reach 19875-19900.
For the Nifty, consider short positions if it trades below 19800 with targets around 19600-19580 levels.
On the upside, long positions can be considered if it rallies above 19800 with targets near 19875-19900 levels.
The Bank Nifty has formed a double top at 46300, and if it trades below 45400, it could fall to 45000.
Resistance would be at 45900/46000 levels.
In the Bank Nifty, cautious trading is advised, and short positions can be considered if it falls below 45400 with targets around 45000 levels.
The Nifty IT index is stabilizing around 29500/29700, which is positive for investors who may invest in select stocks with a medium to long-term view.
All in all, caution is advised for day traders, and monitoring the key support and resistance levels is crucial for making trading decisions. Stay alert for potential movements in the metal sector and PSU Banks.
See you tomorrow!
